New! Tallest dusty miller for cut foliage.Candicans is taller and more productive than other dusty miller varieties in our trials, making it a good choice for cut-flower production. Compared to Silverdust, Candicans is taller, more vigorous, a bit more variable in plant architecture, and its leaves are not as deeply lobed. Otherwise, overall appearance is very similar. Dusty Miller’s silvery foliage is a very popular cut-flower foliage for elegant bouquets. 3–7" long, velvety leaves with a snowflake appearance. Plants produce yellow flowers the second year from seeding, primarily in the southern states. Flowers are commonly removed to encourage foliage growth. Tender perennial in Zones 8–10. Ht. 16–24". Avg. 14,100 seeds/oz. Packet: 50 seeds.
DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-10 days at 72-75°F (22-24°C).
SOWING: Transplant (recommended): Sow 8-10 weeks before last frost. Do not cover seed as light is required for germination; a light covering of vermiculite may be used to help maintain moisture. Bottom water or mist to avoid covering the seed with displaced soil. Transplant into cell packs or larger containers when the first true leaves appear. Keep the foliage dry if possible and avoid watering late in the day to reduce the risk of Alternaria. Direct seeding is not recommended.
